Hey there! I'm Jacqueline Mallene. A little bit about me...

 

I was born and raised in Spokane, WA but am now currently based out of Portland, OR as a singer, actor, and songwriter. But I predominately strive to be an artist as a storyteller. 

 

People, and the nature of humanity and life, have always fascinated me, and I am intrigued by these connections we make, whether they are familial, platonic, romantic, or individual. The stage, and song alike, serve as platforms for reality to take place within imaginary circumstances. As a young artist, I was the dreamer with the dress-up box that loved to play pretend, and I am still that same dreamer today living in these other worlds and believing that, in that moment, the events taking place really are true and that lyrics really can live off the page.

 

With theatre and song, we can enlighten the world by bringing to life perspectives and stories that don’t often get to be told by giving a voice to those who often don’t get to speak in a way that is universally understood. I strive to help bring these narratives to life and hope is that art, whether it be presented on a stage or in a song, can bond us and bring us together, and that the work I do can play a small part in spreading a little love in a world that needs so much more. 

 

Love,
